Voluntary recalls and the FDA’s issued warnings on Transvaginal Mesh Patches draw attention to serious health concerns among women suffering from Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP) and Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI). Dozens of manufacturers are recalling mesh patches due to serious injuries, complications, and side effects. After childbirth, internal injuries damaging the pelvic floor, or hysterectomy surgery, some women experience a weakening in their pelvis muscles and a loss of control of bodily functions. As a way to treat such issues, implanted transvaginal mesh patches were utilized to help prevent POP and SUI; however, the mesh patches had serious consequences.
After receiving the implanted mesh patch, some women experienced: infections, internal bleeding, a narrowing of the vaginal walls, pain during intercourse, vaginal scarring, and a recurrence of both Pelvic Organ Prolapse and Stress Urinary Incontinence. Women also experienced abdominal pains and fever after surgery in hopes of adding support and restoring regularity to their lives. Since 2008, manufacturers and distributors received letters reporting hundreds of cases of serious side effects as a direct result of transvaginal mesh patch implant surgery. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration recognized the serious consequences of the medical appliance and issued warnings accordingly, in hopes that women would acknowledge the severity of the situation.
